DUSHANBE: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan on Thursday agreed to strengthen cooperation in trade, energy and communication sectors besides tackling the challenges of terrorism and extremism in the region. This was agreed in a trilateral meeting of the leaders of three countries at the picturesque resort Varzob, some 40 kilometres from Dushanbe.

During the meeting, the three leaders underscored the importance of further promoting bilateral and economic relations, with implementation of joint projects in areas of energy transfer from Tajikistan to Pakistan and Afghanistan as well as construction of inland rail road for transportation of passengers and goods.

The three sides agreed that terrorism is a regional phenomenon that necessitates a comprehensive, concerted and coordinated approach with full participation of regional states and local communities.

President Zardari in a joint stake out with two leaders termed the event historic that brought together the three nations to jointly own the challenges of terrorism and economy.

“We stand together and work together. We will jointly face all the challenges together,” President Zardari said, adding that the cooperation would result into the prosperity of future generation.

President Zardari proposed that the three leaders should meet every year to strengthen cooperation in various sectors.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Tajik President Emamoli also reiterated their resolve to cooperate for peace and stability in the region.

After the meeting, the three leaders also signed a joint declaration.
